How do I store resins and how long will they keep?

All aromatic materials should be stored in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. They can be kept in the special resealable pouches or tins we provide for up to a year. For longer-term storage, I suggest an airtight glass jar. Resins can last for decades this way if properly stored.

How do I use the incense sticks?

Light the tip of the incense stick until it flames. Once the tip is glowing, carefully blow out the flame. Fix into an appropriate holder on a heat resistant surface.
